February Sketch - Love Theme

My challenge for February is Love!  I love Valentine's Day!  I will be using a pencil and focusing on trusting my ideas and drawing. You may see messy sketches but that's because I don't want to use an eraser.

I'M THINKING hearts, bright colors and incorporate every notion of love. I painted as I thought about this question? What do I love?

I'm working on a challenge for my blog and since this one is going on, why not combine the two. I heard somewhere that to master painting in watercolor you have to learn how to draw first. Then painting will be easier. Here I am and I will be using a pencil.

The dates here are a little mixed up.

I used markers today because I just felt like it.

memory - I did say that I was going to stick with pencil and focus on drawing but my creativity insists on watercolor. I do need watercolor practice too so its all good!

I am an affectionate sensitive soul- always have been and always will be. I was thinking so much for this entry THEME

I went over all of my prints and there's just so much love for the simpler things. My mission is to draw with the heart of an adventurous kid. I loved the paint by numbers sets and markers and for this one I went with my heart. I recently discovered a new love: acrylic paint! I love the craft paper too. Oh something about these two together is so beautiful. I just want to draw what I love and share it with the world.

As I wrote the P for play I realized oh no I'm not going to have enough space. I decided who cares I'll fix it the best way I can and have fun. I got some practice and now I know the spacing needs work.   I also have an awesome idea to explore! I do need to find some paper like this to draw on and not bad for a first practice with acrylic paint.

I love the people in my life and the job I get to do everyday and the art I can create. I want to live up to people's expectations in a sense. Well the people and circumstances that matter to me the most. Sometimes things happen and you have to go with the flow.  Don't you have to stand out to do it your way! Don't you need love to make that happen?  This scares me. I am currently writing a story on this very thing. Doubt and fear are always there but love is greater and when you focus on this...wow

I was trying to play around with rhythm. I do like the color and the heart .

Love from God and love for my people and for everything that brings my heart joy. Love gives me structure period. The problem is I need to listen to my heart more.

Detail

I have been wanting to work on my a block letter alphabet. I love block letters and want to design a regular template that I can change for various projects. I love Peter Pan and this whole idea of adventure--just going with it and not being scared or worried.

I see all of my work and am reminded that I am possible. The world and sometimes the people in it will tell me I have failed or can't like they did to Audrey? I am possible because II have seen my potential.

When you love someone or something you have to take that leap of faith and in the end its all worth it.

That is a wrap. I enjoyed this journal. Some days I had no idea what would emerge but I had this

idea to just follow my heart and draw what came to mind. I want to learn to trust myself.
